THE AHQTTS, THURSDAY, APBIL 6, 1899.
Is like buying many of the so called bargains.
You get but little actual return for your money.
With the good solid everyday merchandising at
Shield's Cash Grocery its different, however. In
saving a little here and a little there the
aggregate grows into a nice round sum when the
year has rolled around. There's nothing that
saves like a saving. Read below.

The idea that the outcome of Tues
day's election should be received and
regarded as a republican victory does
not strike the Union favorably, of
course, l ne reason lor such a curi
ous attitude is not difficult for those
familiar with the circumstances to
understand. To recognize in the ex
pression of the voters Tuesday a tri
umph for republican institutions in a
republican stronghold would be to
attribute to the 'corner" the glory
that its oft vanquished journalistic
rival ii envious of. Rather than '.hat
such a construction should be placed
on the matter, it would prefer to have
it go out that the republican party,
on the clearly drawn issne of the sup
port ol state and national -administra
tions, had been repudiated in a repub
lican town that gave the party s can
didate for president 932 majority in
the last national election, bo that in
a vain endeavor to make its own posi
tion plausible, the union resorts to
what no self respecting paper would
indulge m employing the same wea-
pons of lving and misrepresentation
after the election is over that it used
during the campaign.
One prevarication to which the
Union yields, however, and that which
applies to First avenue railroad or
dinances, it has not edified the pub
lic with before. With reference to
this it is only necessary to say that
no ordinances have been passed of
this kind without the proper petition
ol property holders being submitted
and as for the one now being tested
in the circuit court, it was passed
under the Knox administration
Thus was another burden of prcced
iug administrations loaded on Mayor
Mc-dill's shoulders. As tothe revision
and close collection of water rents.
the purpose to undertake this was set
forth in Mayor Medill's last message
to the council, and it was proposed
to do it as soon as the system of
furnishing clafibcd water to the
consumers was perfected. The
other stulT which the Union argues
about is merely a rehash of campaign
ougaboo amounting to no more now
than it did during the campaign. The
mention ot the unjust antl absolutely
lul.-c allegations luailv by the Union
this morning is like the rehearsing of
dead issues, killed as fast as thev
were brought into existence while the
campaign was on, but to which the
Union, whose offsprings man v of them
were, has failed evidently to give a de
I'nlon Cut No Figure.

nevertheless, not through the efforts
ot the Union, which was placed id the
position of commending to the sup.
port of the people a man whom it had
denounced, but through politics and
politics alon?. Mr. McConochie, past
grand master of the art, was elected
by the application of the same tactics
that insured his nomination shrewd
pontics, as ins nomination was an
evidence that the Union's opinion of
biiu cut no ice, and that the party
cared little for the expressions of its
so-called party organ, so his election
was an evidence that the controlling,
element in local politics was not look
ing for the man but to the interests of
the party. Ihroughout the campaign
the association of McConochie with
the Union's despised foe with its own
party was repeatedly shown and em
phasi.ed, yet there was no word
of objection raised as far as the
morning paper was concerned, for
the simple reason that it looked
for the defeat of McConochie and
was perfectly willing that the "cor
ner should have the full credit, or
discredit, of the reeults. In order to

An exceedingly well attended and
interesting meeting of the Rock Island
Club was held last night at the club
house on Sixteenth street, and in con
nection therewith a smoker aud pro
gram were given, owing to the death
of his brother, I resident K V. liabnsen
was absent, and Phil Mitchell was
called upon to preside.

Dr. R. M. Pearco and Meyer Loeb were
named as a committee to continue the
good work of adding to the member-
ship roll. -
K. A. Donaldson stated that the
committee recently appointed by the
club had had a conference with the
representatives of the local lodges
with reference to the forthcoming
state convention of the Ancient Order
of United Workmen; that it was the
intention to have a public meeting
one night during the convention, at
which it was proposed to have an ad
dress by the mayor, a response by a
prominent Workmen, and a talk by a
member of the Uock island Club,
either Hon. E. W. Hurst or C. J.
Searle being preferred.
A communication was received
from M. D. RoscnUeld, secretary of
the Teuth Congressional Woodmen
Picnic association, setting forth that
preparations were under way for the
second annual log-rolling of the or
ganization, the location of which has
not vet been determined, but which
would depend largely upon the en
couragement, liaancntlly and other
wise, that would be received from the
different cities in the district entitled
to bid for it. An expression of the
club was desired. Mai. C. W. Hawes,
head eleik of the Wi odmen order,
was called for, and stated that there
was no reason why the annual picnic
of the association could not be made
a grand affair in point of attendance
nod material ltcnciits to the city that
would secure it. He suggested that
Rock Island and Moliue act in concert
in the matter, decide on an advan
tageous point for the location of the
picnic, and cooperate with the asso
ciation in the raising of funds, as it
required no little amount of money to
arrange entertainment and liquidate
the various incidentals. People bv
the thousands would be attracted from
throughout the district and other
points. Upon motion of Maj. Hawes,
the president was instructed to ap
point a committee to confer with the
officers of he picnic association and
report at the next meeting of the club.
An amendment to the by-laws mak
ing the second Tuesday of the month
the date of the membership meetings
was adopted. -
